Step 4: Select your mail application to email the Vcard files to Borealis 

Step 5: Click on the 'Email integration' link located at the bottom of your Borealis instance. Copy the email address proposed to send emails in batches. Send the email you prepared previously to Borealis by using this copied Bcc email address.

Note that the email does not require a subject or body paragraph; the system will read the attached vcf file to create contacts.
